Hama Lightweight Wrap

65.00

A lightweight cotton wrap or a multi-use fouta, was originally used as a sarong in traditional Middle Eastern bathhouses and spas. Crafted from linen or 100% cotton, and finished with handmade fringe detailing.

SOCIAL IMPACT
Abdullah’s weaving workshop is a family business that has existed for three generations in Hama, Syria, specializing in the ancient art of cotton towel and textile weaving dating back to 1853. When the workshop opened, there were about 600 of its kind, but today due to the war, Abdullah and his family run the only workshop left in Syria dedicated entirely to the traditional craft of hand-woven towels. Each towel purchase supports the advancement of artisan entrepreneurs, both in the U.S. and the Middle East.

THE DETAILS
As fouta towels are considerably thinner than many other luxury bath towels, they are easy to pack and travel with , can easily transition from the pool to the porch and back again. Use as a sarong, beach blanket, scarf, wrap on a chilly night, table cloth, or to enjoy a live music concert on the grass.
